Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
I personally did not like the food in the main dining nor the buffet and the steak house was the best food we had the other specialty restaurants were not to our liking.

Waves Bar

4 out of 5

It was actually called Bali Hai in the pool area but wasn't offered in the drop down menu that was by far the best bar it was actually the smoking area bar and the bartenders were all awesome

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
There really wasn't much to do for being in the boat for 7 sea days and as for the Rock Climbing Wall it was only open for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward Laze on on the 8th floor doing the corridor including our cabin which was 8586 was wonderful the best part of our trip.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
To us the boat was very boring nothing jumps out as being wow, it really wasn't colorful at all very muted colors and it really does need a rehab again even though it was done in 2015.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
It was ok it was a partial ocean view as the windows are mostly blocked with Life Boats the pillows were horrible very old, heavy and flat. The best part by far was the shower I would put one in my bathrooms in a heartbeat
